    OEM B6 offset is typically 43 - so an offset of 35 means the wheels will "stick out" 8mm further than standard. They will still be well covered by wheel arch though, ideal offset IMO.

    What width are they they? 8 or 8.5 I guess?

    With that offset they will sit nice, go for it.

    What's the lowest offset you could reasonably get away with? I have seen some nice wheels that have an offset of 52, but I wanted to space them by 25mm, therefore taking the total down to 27 -- would I have any issues with the arches?

    27 will push the wheel's out to much, i'm running 15mm spacer's on the rear's. 27 offset is to much.

    Cheers for the info!
    What offset are you running then?
    Do you have any pictures for reference?

    im running 8.5j with the et35 offset and they sit lovely, give the car that little bit more stance, wider look but could still go out a bit more if needed but not by alot.

    I'm running 8.5 x 19, 235 tyre (45 offset) with 15mm spacer on the rear's which give's an offset of 30 (inner clearance is a 15mm gain) (Outer postion is 15mm ) No rub what so ever
    and the car is lowered on Eibach pro-street.
